Subject[PATCH 1/8] Documentation/filesystems: fix documentation for ->getattr()
From
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

Following the recent merge of statx, correct the documented prototype
for the ->getattr() inode operation, and add an entry to the porting
file.

+ ->getattr() is now passed a struct path rather than a vfsmount and
+ dentry separately, and it now has request_mask and query_flags arguments
